This is a small house but worth a look to understand the arrangement of these homes. Flood levels are marked in the property along with photos and they are interesting. Some of the furniture is very ornate with beautiful inlays. A young guide will explain a little about the home and its owners and offer a complimentary tea. As part... More

Very helpful guide and beautiful architecture and history make this a must-see if you are interested in the old houses of Hoi An. Old and well maintained, there are great examples of the multicultural influence on Hoi An architecture on display in this one home. Interesting history about surviving the floods as well.

This so one of the choices to visit after you buy an old city tourist ticket. I'd definitely suggest this one as the others aren't so good. There was a free, brief description about the place and a little history. Always better to know what you're looking at!!
